Activities

Archaeological Evaluation (22 September 2008 - 24 September 2008)

NN 7256 0182 An evaluation was carried out from 22– 24 September 2008, in advance of a proposed housing

development. One of the aims of the evaluation was to determine if Doune standing stone had been moved to its

current location in the recent past. The evaluation did not identify any clear indication that the standing stone had been relocated and cartographic evidence suggests that it has been in its present site since at least 1862. No other features of archaeological significance were identified.
